The idea of blackjack games consists in scoring with your cards 21 or something as close as possible, but no more, or wait for a dealer to gain more than 21 points, which gives a player an automatic win.
You will find this game in every digital casino. But many modify not only bets minimums and maximums but also generally accepted rules. To attract players to a competitive environment, some casinos transform rules which gives players a little more advantage. There are also independent varieties of blackjack games that have their names, differ from the classic type in numbers of cards, bonus payments, or card combinations.
This game happens at a table marked with rectangular betting boxes. Some real money blackjack tables include from 7 to 12 boxes. Each player can choose any number of free boxes to bet, thus playing in several hands simultaneously. Cards are handled overtly. At first, a croupier deals 2 cards for a player, then takes a card themselves. Then, players, one at a time, take cards on the boxes, after which the croupier collects cards for themselves. Players do not anyhow compete against each other. The goal is for each player to defeat the dealer.
In online live classic blackjack, there is a deck of 312 cards – 6 decks with 52 cards each. The player needs to collect maximum points, but no more than 21. If it does exceed 21, a player loses, and their bet goes in a casino bank, regardless of a dealer’s overbalance.
Card suits are of no importance. Cards from 2 to 10 have corresponding points; jacks, queens, kings give 10 points each; aces can be counted for 1 or 11 points. When scoring points with aces, the maximum possible count, not topping 21, is selected. A phenomenon when the ace is valued both as 1 and 11, without surpassing 21, is called the soft hand. On the hard hand, the ace can value only 1 point, otherwise, there is an excess.
